1947 Royal Quiet De Luxe #A-1331104


Such a sweet little typer. Great feel, smooth, and SO quiet. I found this the other day at a small antique store. Unfortunately there's no case with it, but for $25 I just couldn't pass up such a nice one. Works great. Pica typeface.

I've spent my life as a mechanical and electronics tinkerer, bikes, cars, lawnmowers, appliances, cameras, audio gear, guitars, amplifiers, and pedal steel guitars. I was trained as a typist for 2 years back in the late 70's on IBM Selectric II's. At home I recall my mother having an Olympia SM3. More recently we got our daughter a typewriter for Christmas, and that somehow sparked my own personal interest in these fine and interesting machines. Now it's a habit that just won't quit. Daily searches on Craigslist, frequent trips to antique stores & malls, garage sales, etc. It's a fun and healthy addiction.
